I absolutely loved Mayo Clinic.. I had impecable care and an amazing team of doctors that treated me like I was there only patient, God had definitely blessed me! I fell in love with Rochester, Minnesota. The people there were so nice and the weather was unbelievable. I loved being there, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that going there was the best decision for me. All of that being said Ashland, Kentucky had never sounded so wonderful!!! I couldnt wait to get home to see my babies. I had been away from them for way too long!!
I did not realize what a privelage it is to be a stay at home mom until I wasn't able to do all the things I do for my girls each day. I took so much for granted! I couldnt wait to fix sippys, brush curly hair for 30 minutes, listen to whining b/c the movie in the van was skipping and most of all I couldnt wait to see their beautiful faces. I think I had a perma-smile for the rest of the evening after we returned home.
The next day we had our first MOPS meeting of the year. I couldnt wait to see everyone there. I knew I had missed everyone but I did not realize how much!! When we went into discussion groups after out speakers I realized that this bump in the road was not just me alone, I had a ton of people on this journey with me. There were so many people over the past month that were there every step of the way to pray for me and encourage me.
Psalm 23:5 "My cup overflows." At that moment I realized that my cup was like a waterfall and God had placed so many wonderful individuals in my path to help fill that cup for me and I am so thankful for that!
There have been tears and I know that there will still be some hard times to come but I am comforted in knowing that I have so many amazing, compassionate, loving, and prayerful people in my life.
